WDWNT’s newest staff member, Anthony Yacullo, has just returned from his latest trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and has a number of photos from around the world to share with us:

Construction of Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration continues in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom.

The control booth is coming along nicely as well.

The Diamond Horseshoe was open to handle spring break crowds.

Anthony had a chance to look at some of the model rooms for the Kidani Village villas at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

He also got to check out model rooms for Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
